Notes & Reviews:

"That anyone can conduct in their late eighties is remarkable; that the results should have the incisive vitality of these recordings is truly amazing. Stokowski's exuberant jaunt through Franck's Symphony, delighting en route in the delicacy of the slow movement, rivals Beecham's classic account...The three miniatures are also welcome, particularly Stokowski's haunting orchestration of Chopin's A minor Mazurka, Op. 17." ***** -BBC Music
